Been back working for them part time last couple of years mainly in a PR role and then he quits reffing to take up a post in London.

You don't think the real reason he quit was because he heard about what the child grooming report contained?

Doubt it

At least with Webb he's a copper who we knew what he was doing most of the time.

No saying he's involved but for the last few years he's been working for Shaun Wright doing PR for SY Police, he's not going to want to do that anymore is he?

Seems like a coincidence he got out just in time, wouldn't surprise me if the conclusion of the report had already become known in SYP.

Would imagine it's down to his new job (link) being full time - view external link (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/football/news/11016216/Howard-Webb-retires-as-referee-after-25-years-to-become-match-officials-te)
